Mismatched bridesmaids here! My ladies have different preferences and range in age from 30 to turning 11 tomorrow. Finding the same dress for all of them might have done in my already questionable sanity

Rose Gold. I don’t care if it won’t be trendy in 30 years. It’s my rings and my forever.

Our wedding is a vintage, handmade, rustic wedding! We have Mason jar candy favors, banners made with jute twine and vintage fabric, we aren’t doing burlap table overlays or runners but we are doing craft paper and putting crayons on the table so people can draw! We also have a totally mismatched bridal party, I love it. ๐Ÿ™‚

stephncollins:  my wedding is the perfect summation of so many things you mentioned LOL and we loved every bit of it!

i wore lace toms for most of the wedding, but had pics taken in my Duke University cowboy boots, had lace and burlap, “naked” homemade bundt cakes, buntings, mismatched bridesmaids, a thumbprint tree guest book (a custom painted gift from my MOH), and a whole lot of fun – we did skip mason jars only because it was easier to just use the regular glasses from the rental/catering co…

I did the mason jars! Not only was it cute but I saved a ton of money compared to vases!

I like this thread more

Mismatched bridesmaids, a rustic venue, mint & coral & peach & gold, vintage-y things, lace, an invitation suite, floral crown, groom & groomsmen in vests, and naked cake.

Will my wedding be beautiful? Um, yes! Unique……meh.

-I’m doing vintage, but not rustic.

-bud vases for centerpieces


-I have a halo ring. I got it because I love it, not because it’s a trend though!

-Mirror and chalkboard signs. They won’t have sayinga on them. They will be functional signs/labels 

-Different style bridesmaid dresses (but in the same color, fabric, and length)

I’m sure there is more, but this is all I can think of at the moment ๐Ÿ™‚

I know the Gatsby theme is getting a little over played but I Have always loved art deco design and mid-century modern design. Even though the 20’s and 50’s are drastically different I plan to incorporate both vintage styles into my wedding.  Think Gatsby meets 50’s suburbs.  It will be totally formal, vintage, and shiny with an earthy feel.  

I like signs and will be using chalkboards or mirrors.  Im going to have a photobooth, Uplighting.  I will have cupcakes, I will try to entertain my guest because thats who I am, I love entertainment.

Not for mine but I reeaaallly want to go to a ’20s themed wedding! I think it’d be so fun and glam! I know it’s trendy on Pinterest and blogs and whatnot but I have never been to one and I think it’d be fun!!


There isn’t really much room for mine to be trendy, we’re only having 20 ish people at a restaurant. My look will be kind of trendy, like I mentioned in the other thread, strapless dress and loose curls hairstyle. I guess my shower and our invites and things have had sort of a whimsical theme rather than formal. Which may be trendy…the varying fonts and cutesy pictures on the invite.

I’m doing the whole shabby/chic/rustic/country. It’s so much easier for DIY projects. The burlap table runner is frayed? So what? It’s “shabby chic” lol. 

Here’s some inspiration from our wedding venue:

My bridesmaids will be wearing mismatched dresses (same colour/fabric/length) and they will be carrying peach/blush/cream/gold bouquets. 

I’m doing the very Pinterest-y sewing a heart made from dad’s shirt into my dress lining. 

We’re having up lighting as well.
